Top Issues: Healthcare
BACKGROUND: The Affordable Care Act (commonly known as Obamacare) remains a burdensome program for ACCA members because it leads to higher and constantly shifting premiums. While full repeal and replace remains a priority for ACCA, it is unlikely to happen in the 116th Congress. ACCA did secure passage of the Small Business Relief Act which repealed a provision that would have taxed contractors $100 per day per employee - that’s $36,500 per employee per year - if they offered healthcare reimbursement arrangements, instead of following Obamacare’s programs. ACCA continues to push for association health plans to be made available on a national basis.
SOLUTION: ACCA supports the repeal of the Affordable Care Act/Obamacare.
SOLUTION: ACCA supports access to association health plans on a national basis.
SOLUTION: ACCA supports maintaining access to healthcare reimbursement programs.
